Former Labor Nominee Andy Puzder: Political Opponents Sent Threats and a Suspicious White Powder to My Wife

While the media natters on about threats that have not been made, they are strangely quiet about threats that have actually been made.

Puzder said he received packages and letters that went beyond typical hate mail or opposition post cards distributed by left-wing groups and unions. A hazmat crew and FBI officials arrived at his Franklin, Tennessee home to retrieve and analyze a package containing white powder that his wife had opened, he said.

"There was an envelope left at our house addressed to my wife that had white powder in it, a pink piece of paper with 'Trump' written on it, and then obviously the white powder was in a plastic bag, but you open the envelope and a little powder came out," Puzder said. "We had an FBI terrorist team come to the house. We had a couple fire engines with hazmat teams come to the neighborhood."

...

Activists from Fight for $15, a protest movement backed by Service Employees International Union, demonstrated at Puzder's front door. His wife opened another package containing a noose, though Puzder did not witness that incident.

"I didn't see it, but I was told there was a paper-doll with a noose around its neck and there was--again, addressed to my wife, not addressed to me, which shows the cowardice of these people," Puzder said.

SEIU did not respond to a request seeking comment about whether the union condemned such behavior.

Terrorist groups often form a supposedly "clean-hands" front group which can pose as a semi-respectable bargaining partner for those the terrorists terrorize. Black September created the PLO as their respectable front-face, for example. Correction: CBD tells me the PLO was formed several years before Black September. Okay - so swap in the IRA and the "political wing" Sinn Fein.

I kinda feel like the Democrat Party is the front group for the extremist and violent groups it actually works hand in hand with, and the media is their communications department and crisis management firm.
